, and also what you would expect him to say, the older brother, tamerlan, was the driving force behind these terrorist attacks. based on what the investigators are getting from dzhokhar, this government sore tells me that the brothers, according to dzhokhar, seem to be self-radicalized, self-starters. they were motivated by the driving train of thought was jihadist thought. and all the governments -- i'm sorry all the political or religious implications that entails the idea being, of course, that they thought they construed islam to be under attack and needed to fight back. that's what they're saying based on initial interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar. >> where he's speaking, communicating by writing, by hand signals, nodding? >> not speaking. communicating through nodding, through writing and other ways of nonverbal. he has that bullet wound to his throat. he can't really speak. he spoke one word in that interview with the magistrate yesterday. >> no. >> he said no. and the magistrate said let the record reflect that i believe the defendant, the suspect, is saying no. h

brother, the 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev, had posted on his youtube account. we're going to show you that in just a few moments. stand by for that. first, i want to update all of our viewers on the surviving suspect, the younger brother, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. he's still hospitalized in what doctors describe as serious but stable condition. federal officials say he has injuries to his throat. he's unable to speak. he could be charged, though, by federal prosecutors as early as today. right at his hospital bedside. you just heard that from the attorney general of massachusetts, martha coakley, in our interview here in boston. for more, though, on what's going on, let's bring in our crime and justice correspondent joe johns. he's working his sources over at the justice department. the fbi, elsewhere, what are officials telling you, joe, about this proceeding? truly extraordinary proceeding that could happen at the hospital at the suspect's bedside? >> well, wolf, our sources have told us it's possible we could see charges against this suspect today, but there's no guarantee, an

of which exploded during the thursday night battle that ended with the death of tamerlan tsarnaev. his brother, the younger brother, was captured in watertown last night and he lies seriously wounded right now in a local hospital. a justice department official says he will face federal terrorism charges, possibly state murder charges at the same time. we are learning the 19-year-old was at the university of massachusetts dartmouth, just south of boston, every day, yes, every day after the attack. late thursday, he attended classes as well as dorm parties. hard to believe, but that's what we are learning right now. in the tense final standoff, dzhokhar tsarnaev was hidden in a bo a boat parked in the watertown driveway of a resident covered by a tarp. a helicopter overhead was able to take what they call thermal images showing the movements inside that boat. joining us now is tom foreman, national security analyst, tom fuentes as well, assistant former director of the fbi. these thermal images, walk us through, tom, what was going on. >> we were just talking about this a moment ago, wol

was known about the older suspect who is now dead, tamerlan tsarnaev, and this trip ta hat he took to rusa last year. law makes want to know why is it that tamerlan tsarnaev was able to make this trip in the first place. should he have been stopped before he went overseas? when overseas what did he do? what was he up to when he was over there? some of this is stemming from some of the conflicting stories, quite frankly, chris, from federal officials over tamerlan tsarnaev's status. senator lindsey graham, republican from south carolina, told reporters yesterday that tamerlan was on a no-fly list, that he was on some sort of terror watch list a federal law enforcement official has told cnn that is not the case. and senator charles grassley, graham's republican colleague in the senate, asked secretary janet napolitano from the department of homeland security about the discrepancy earlier this morning. here's bit of that exchange. >> was your department aware of his travels to russia, and if you weren't, the reason? >> the travel in 2012 that you're referring to? yes, the system pinged when h
police until he was found in a boat last night. he is in stable condition in the hospital. when tamerlan was interviewed overseas by the fbi as a follower of radical islam. here is joe johns. >> well, they found nothing incriminating and the fact that tamerlan was interviewed by the fbi two years before the bombings, was already stirring up controversy before the bombing in watertown. the chairman of the security committee. >> if they let him out of their sights, then that is an issue for me. >> reporter: the mother said that agents had been harassing her son for years. >> they knew what my son was doing, and they knew what actions and what sites on the internet he was doing. they were watching every step of him and telling today, this is a terrorist act. >> reporter: the fbi confirmed in 2011 they interviewed the older brother and family members, but it did not say how many times. it was at the request of russian intelligence ak considereding the a senior u.s. official. the fbi said that the request was based on information that tsarnaev was a follower of radical islam and a strong beli
